Now at the Berkman Center

[This is a backdated post actually made on 10/17/2006]

I’m starting as a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society this month, studying legal education / training and how technology may be fundamentally changing both the practice for which we are training attorneys as well as the methods we use to teach. The project is funded by LexisNexis; an early announcement of it is here (NY Law Journal).

The legal practice and education markets are both in a state of ferment. The study conducted by Pace Law School referenced in the NY Law Journal article focused on mid-sized firms and how law schools like Pace can better prepare or market their students to that segment; meanwhile, Harvard itself is revamping its first-year curriculum.

On a personal note, it’s exciting to be at the Berkman Center and Harvard Law School. I will be splitting my time between the Center and at Legal Aid University, where I will still be designing and running training programs for poverty lawyers.
